‘I haven’t travelled everywhere, but it’s on my list’- Susan Sontag

Other than agreeing on the above quote, I also have a personal more in-depth bucket list which seems to be getting bigger every time something gets ticked off. The more I see, the more I want to see. It’s a crazy cycle. But I have no doubt that everything I want to do is achievable, however, I don’t put a time frame on them. I like to travel slowly and fully towards the direction of my bucket list and enjoy the ride on the way.

I will keep adding to this list, and updating it with relevant posts, so I think it deserves pride of place as a permanent top bar feature. (Yup, there is a lot of scuba dive related items, I can't help I'm addicted)
